  1. What exactly is the difference between Firefox and Camino in relation to how they render pages? They do use the same rendering engine, Gecko right? I know Camino is written from the ground up in Cocoa, but it seems slower than Firefox.

    Anyone care to help me on this one? Thanks.

  2. Squatch: The difference is that Camino’s code is designed for OS X and OS X only. They don’t have to worry about portability. This means you get native keychain, address book and rendevous support, among a lot of other things.

  3. ignorant fool: IMHO, they aren’t. I find Safari to be quicker and look better than Firefox. However Firefox is incredibly customizable. You can add all kinds of extensions to add functionality Safari doesn’t have. I keep Firefox as a second browser.
